Hot Yoga ’is tough but effective’
Fitness enthusiasts keen to try something new have been encourage to try their hand at hot Yoga, or Bikram Yoga.
According to Heather Dale of Fit Sugar, although hot Yoga may seem intimidating at first, it is one of the most invigorating fitness exercises available.
Hot Yoga involves participants contorting their body into a range of challenging positions on Yoga mats in temperatures of around 40 degrees Celsius.
Some sessions make use of low tempo meditative music, while others are accompanied by loud rhythmic music to facilitate the process.
The poses involved in hot Yoga can be very intense and tend to be held for longer periods of time, while others are quick.
Regardless of the tempo, hot Yoga practitioners are urged to keep filling their lungs with air and take long, deep breaths throughout the workout.
Ms Dale pointed out that hot Yoga participants need to keep themselves hydrated during the session and if they need time to rest and catch their breath, they should go into the child’s pose and take the time they need before proceeding.
Potential hot Yoga participants are warned that they should prepare to sweat profusely due to the intense temperatures the sessions usually take place in.
"Feel free to wipe your face during class with your hand towel if the sweat beads rolling down your face get to be too much and after class, remember to wipe around your mat for any sweat that escaped your towel zone," Ms Dale stated.
Participants were also advised to steer clear of baggy articles of clothing or items made of cotton, because these tend to trap sweat, which will lead to a feeling of discomfort.
Fushi offer a range of ethical bamboo Yoga clothes that are ideal for a comfortable hot Yoga workout.
Celebrity Yoga trainer Subodh Gupta recently extolled the virtues of the Chakrasana Yoga poses, stressing that it is an ideal way to improve overall strength and suppleness.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
